this here? >> rose cats and i am a resident of glen park and a frequent user of the park. i have already submitted my written comments. i would just like to you a, deny the appeal. >> next speaker, please. >> good evening, my name is maria monodory, i am a city resident and thank you board members for hearing us, i have three remarks. the large old trees, have enormous crowns that slt leafy portion where the photo synthesis occurs, on the surface of every leaf are pores to which carbon dioxide is pulled out of the atmosphere, they are like natural vacuums that move the pollution from the air. they plan to cut down 190 trees over all in the multiple projects for glen park. which will result in more pollution to the debt triment to all of us in the city. just think of how that will effect the children with asthma. park and rec say that these trees will be replaced by seedings. how many seedings would actually replace the function of one large tree? 50? 100? there is not enough land to substitute, 100 seedings for one tree. the roots of the tree burrow deep into the earth serving for protec

the air. they plan to cut down 190 trees over all in the multiple projects for glen park. which will result in more pollution to the debt triment to all of us in the city. just think of how that will effect the children with asthma. park and rec say that these trees will be replaced by seedings. how many seedings would actually replace the function of one large tree? 50? 100? there is not enough land to substitute, 100 seedings for one tree. the roots of the tree burrow deep into the earth serving for protection against the erosion, if they were cut the space for the tennis courts the roots will die and the hill will slide down right under the courts. what is the point of spending millions of dollars that the city doesn't have to move a set of perfectly functional tennis courts? the tree serve as habitat for many of the canyon lines wild life from spiders and bugs to owls and where will the animals go. they are part of the natural landscape that so many of us love. we have many developed parks in the city. but only one wild canyon. it is a treasure, so please leave it as it is.

. >> my name is mike walcul and i leave on par dies avenue right across from glen canyon park where i have been living all of my life born and raised across from the park and about the subject of the trees, i have seen with some of those trees have come down and it was an act of god and no one has been hurt or killed. especially in these times when years when you have an el nino year where you can have the storms and the trees come down before anybody realizes what is going on, the next thing you are dead and something should be done. some of those trees are dangerous, it doesn't matter what anybody says, some of those trees are dangerous and just a matter of time before somebody gets hurt or worse or yet killed. >> i just wanted to say, allow this work to be done over here in glen canyon park. a lot of that should have been done years ago and everything. that is why the place is in bad shape from years of neglect. because nobody at rec and park or city hall really cared about showing an interest in glen park when things are like deteriorating with the rec center building. and the thing ab

. poor suitbility is not hazardous. the rec and parks assessment for glen canyon only identified one, high risk tree for removal with the renovation project. it is the other assessment called for the suitbility that is removing the remainder of the trees. so, we respectfully request that the board of appeals revoke the building permit for any work on the hillside. there isn't conclusive proof of compliance with the state and environmental regulations for any such work in the hillside. once the 130--year-old trees are gone, they are gone forever, along with much of the loved character of glen canyon park. thank you. >> okay. we are hearing from the department, now. rec and parks? >> >> hello, i am karin mondiborda c, i am the deputy director and the project manager for the glen park project and i am pleased to be here to have the opportunity to respond to this appeal and provide information on this important project. >> glen canyon park is an extremely special and diverse environment with the mix of natural amendties and others. >> the challenge that the public has before them with an

is it is killing glen park and destroying while life habitat. the permit says that they have the exemption because the work will not be done in the areas but on the... and it is totally untrue. the removal of the trees which are under the construction must not be attached to the center project at all. this project will be wasting tax payer money on building a new entrance, and the hills and trees and planting native gardens instead of using this money to work on the recreation center filled with the play grounds and playing hills. it was a half a million, ad promotes. the process did not actually consume the neighbor's information was withheld from the community. in the information provided was... and will be doing the presentation. >> so, i am also a park user and i would like to say thank you for hearing the appeal and considering our concerns. it is absolutely not correct that spending a half million dollars for a repeated community workshops replaces the compliance with the environmental control regulations. the workshops are more about marketing a product, rather than the project so that they

park down by the playground, but all of the people surrounding all of glen canyon, if you have ever driven down oshanasy, you know that the canyon is huge and it needs its mature healthy trees. i am curious to know of those 58 in this initial plan that are to be removed, how many of those are hazardous? >> how many are mature healthy trees that have no need to be removed on the hillside? i don't think that anybody objects to the fact that the rec center needs all kinds of work. you know, kristin grew up there, all three of my kids were campers, she was a jr. counselor for silver tree and they grew up in that canyon and she learned what a possum was and there is so much wild life now and i am not a grandmother, i am a great grandmother and i want to be able to take my kids and grandkids all the way back through the canyon under the trees. i also very quickly i feel that not enough out reach was done on the heights part of this project because i live in glen ridge and it is a cooperative and it is comprised of 275 units throughout diamond heights including berkeley way that overlooks

glen park two blocks for 40 years. i support the plan and i urge you to deny the appeal before you and to grant the permit. to understand, community support for this project is important that you look at the minutes of much more recent meetings than the one that was just referred to recently. when i walk through the recreation center part of this park, he can see the very real need for better picnic and safer play and accessible rest rooms and a safe and welcoming park entrance, i also support the landscaping plan ta that is associated with this project. there is so much focus on the tree removal and we have ignored the rich pallet that has been proposed. although it is not an ecological project, it still does offer an opportunity to increase the biological diversity of our park and neighborhood and to offer environmental education opportunities. not everyone agrees that no tree should ever be removed for any reason unless it poses an immediate hazard to life or property. trees stand very often need to be thinned for their own health and longevitity. we absolutely need trees, inclu

project would not involve any work in the glen canyon park natural area. it wasn't... it was with that in mind, presumably and based on that information, that the planning commission, awarded the contract in august. and it is only after this appeal was filed, that the planning department realizes oops, in fact we are doing this in the natural areas. this is something that was completely under the radar, it was not disclosed to the public and it was not disclosed to anybody. and so to accuse these people of delaying when it was not really until october that somehow everybody came to the realization that this was in the natural areas is really unfair to the opponents to this project and to suggest that the opponents of this project have to file another appeal, oh, no, you are not the ones who get to decide this, although i thing that the charter requires you to resolve these issues because it is not in the best interest of the public that this goes forward as planned. but to suggest that they have to go forward to the board of supervisors that would bring more delay

and i think that, i'm... i love to play tennis, i am a user of glen park and the canyon and i have small children and i love the wildness also. there are a lot of things that need to and have apparently gone into consideration but it has not in my opinion been sufficient. at the same time, i'm again, we are ham strung to address those issues here. so that is where i will end my comments. >> i am sorry. we are in deliberation, so this is if we have a motion? >> i move to deny the appeal and grant the permit. >> is there a basis upon which you would like to make that motion? i know that it has been stated that there was a sufficient public process. >> i think that let's make it simple and just say that based on its co-compliance. >> okay, thank you. >> do we have a motion then from the vice president to up hold this permit on the basis that it is co-compliant. >> on that motion, president hwang? >> aye. >> commissioner hurtado? >> aye. >> commissioner lazarus? >> aye. >> thank you, the vote is 4-0. the permit is upheld on that basis. >> if you have a process question, you may address the s

of violence around delores park last year. there have been robberies in glen park and parts of the valley. there have been shootings in diamond heights. one of the challenges is making sure that the police department understands that even though we may not have the same crime levels as some neighborhoods, we still need attention from the police department. >> let's talk about the city's economic development. are we on the right track? what would you like to change about the approach to developing the economy? >> we are getting better. the city as got more proactive about attracting businesses and new industries and providing incentives for them to come and stay here. it is still a very expensive place to do business in terms of the cost of labor, land. we need to make sure that we are not taxing businesses to the point that it is not profitable and we are not attractive for them to be here. we need to reform our payroll tax. that is an incentive not to create jobs. i know the board president david chu is working on possibility this there -- possibilities there. i look forward to working w
